Whether you are making Christmas Cookies for a cookie exchange, Santa or your yearly cookie baking day these 11 Christmas cookies need to be on your list. I love the variety of these Christmas Cookies, they are all so unique.
If you are like most families, you have the same Christmas cookies you make every year. Following great grandmas handwritten recipe card is always a Christmas tradition.
However, there is always room for more cookies and new options. I try a new cookie every year along with making my classic snickerdoodles, lemon cookies, and my grandmother’s peanut butter balls.
This list will inspire you to branch out and make a new Christmas cookie or two you will end up making year after year.

These festive kiss cookies put a spin on the traditional sugar cookie. Trust me, cut out sugar cookies can be tedious work. I love how you can get your traditional taste of sugar cookies mixed with candy cane from the kiss.
Peppermint Oreo Truffles
Found on Two Twenty One
Truffles are always a crowd-pleaser. People love how easy they are to pick up and pop into their mouth with no mess. Oreos are underused for Christmas cookies and this recipe you will make every year! They are so addicting.
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
Found on Cooking Classy
I don’t know if it is just me, but every party I go to there are crinkles on the cookie tray. They wouldn’t be my first pick but the fact that this recipe has them with red velvet it would be game over. There wouldn’t be any crinkles left on the plate.
Frosted Peppermint Brownie Cookies
Found on Cooking Classy
This Christmas cookie had me at brownie. Another underused Christmas cookie foundation. Santa is going to want you to leave these with his glass of milk. Brownies+Milk=Heaven!
Christmas Cookie Pinwheels
Found on Yellow Bliss Road
The Yello Bliss Road says that the 3 color dough does take some time to get together, but it’s TOTALLY worth it. I mean look at the picture, I am sure they are even more good looking in real life.
Softbatch Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies
Found on Averie Cooks
When we think of traditional Christmas cookies, chocolate chip cookies don’t normally make the list. What really got my attention with these cookies is the cream cheese. I have never used less butter to add cream cheese, but I am so ready to try!

Another truffle recipe? Yes! A sugar cookie ball dipped in chocolate I do not have to say another word! Look at how festive these look! Careful I am sure these will disappear quickly.
